Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Monday called for continued cooperation between Egypt and Israel following the ouster of Egyptian Defense Minister Mohamed Hussein Tantawi by President Mohamed Morsy on Sunday.

Speaking in the Druze village of Kfar Maghar, where he was participating in the sending-off ceremony for Druze professor Naim Araidi who in September will be taking up his position as Israel's ambassador to Norway, Liberman said,  "I hope that in Egypt we will see the same understanding for cooperation between Israel and Egypt. This is no less an Egyptian interest than an Israeli one."

Liberman said the "terrorist kingdom" that developed in Sinai over the years was "first and foremost harming Egyptian national security interests, no less than harming Israel 's security." Israel was willing to work out numerous issues with Egypt through "mutual respect" and "honoring all agreements," he said.
